Those are Foxtrot class submarines of indian navy......Last submarine was decommissioned in 2003.
What was a >80 m long Kilo-like hull doing at HSL in 2004?? All the SSKs under IN during those times were more-or-less the 60 m class. The GoI, then, might've been actively testing an ATV!!!! I think this was the technology demonstrator before Arihant-class.........
Well, you might see two subs in the picture, I cannot confirm from the silhouette a second one of the 80m-kind.
